New Construction homes in Norhtwest Indiana



Tired of looking for a house and you’re thinking about building? That’s not a bad idea. My wife and I are going through it right now. So, you have a lot of options really. Here’s a list of things you really want to do.

First: The first thing you really want to do is figure out the financing. You really don’t want financing delays during the project. Some builders carry the contraction loan, and some will not. Which means you’ll have to go to your bank and get a construction loan. You also must see if you can finance the lot with the build or if you must purchase the lot previously.

Second: The lot. Some builders will carry the lot, and some won’t. You want to have an idea of where you want to be or purchase the lot a head of time. Most of the time the bank will want you to own the lot FREE and CLEAR. They’ll then use that as your down payment if you take out a construction loan.

Third: Get the floor plan exactly the way you want it. No matter if you must go to an architect or you find them online. Changes are easier to do before you start building.

Fourth: Find your builder. Now, a lot of people go to the big-name builders or the well-known builders. The big thing is you’re going to want to work with someone you trust and get along with. This is a very big moment in your life. You don’t want to build a house with someone you can’t work with. That just doesn’t make since. Also, a lot of builders are coming back into the market from before the recession. A handful of them ripped a lot of people off. You can always search they’re names on the Indiana Docket page.

Fifth: Issues will come up. It’s bound to happen. Better planning upfront makes for a much easier process in general. There’s a solution to every problem so FREAKING OUT isn’t going to get the job done. If anything, it will just delay things and make it worse.

      I honestly am not that good at this. I’m really not sure what to do. I kind of wish I had someone to run my website and work on the SEO for it as well as the blog. I’ll definitely look into what you just sent me. Thank you very much for the information.

      Thank you,

Brent is very hardworking. Best realestate agent to have. He showed me tons of homes in my price range and offered his expert opinion and background of the neighborhoods we were in.
